    Since it is Siri-enabled, can a burglar be standing at the door or standing near you (since you always have your iPhone in the pocket) and shouting “hey Siri, open the front door!” ?

    That Siri simplicity is what scares me about smart door locks.

    Considering the Amazon Echo has much better microphones, one could just yell through an open window, “Alexa, unlock the front door!”

    Some smart locks don’t have a keypad at all. Which type is better?

    Or is it a convenience versus security tradeoff?

    In order for Siri to unlock the door you need to unlock your phone, if your phone is locked, Siri won’t unlock the door.

    Are you sure you can’t just say, “Hey Siri…”?
